Trenton Things to Do

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tour the recently restored NJ State House.
    This is the second-oldest capitol in continuous use in the US. The restoration of the dome has made it beautiful from both inside and out. Don't miss the combination gas/electric lights in the Assembly chamber. Electricity was still new and unreliable when Edison installed the lights.
    The tours are concise and interesting.

Trenton Restaurants

  • Subs, hoagies, whatever, they taste...

    The pictures of local landmarks are pretty cool to check out. The food is always good. They are open and deliver 7 days a week. And they have daily specials monday thru friday so the menu never gets old For a sub it would be the #5 (ham and capicola) I agree w/previous writer. For hot stuff, I can't get enough of their different types of fries...

  • Awesome Food!!

    This place has a great variety of foods and nothing disappoints. Also the decor is really cool because it features photos of mostly local landmarks. Plenty of seating and they deliver. They also have daily specials that are really creative. My favorite sub is the #5 (ham and capicola w/provolone cheese.) But if I'm in the mood for something...

  • Top notch hoagies/subs, cheesesteaks,...

    Definitely casual, but oh so tasty! Hoagie Tom's Grille (Featuring FD Subs) in Ewing, NJ (outside of Trenton) serves up some of the best hoagies/subs in the entire Philadelphia metro area. To me, a good hoagie starts off with the roll and Hoagie Tom doesn't disappoint. All sandwiches are made to order and the meats and cheeses are sliced while you...

Any other term for the elongated sandwich will only lead to confusion.The "Triple-Bypass" - Porkroll, egg and cheese on a hard roll.

    Do the history bit. Start at Washington's Crossing, PA and follow Washington's path across the Delaware, down to the Old Barracks in Trenton, climb the Battle Monument, and eventually move on to Princeton. Chances are, the world today would be a very different place if Washington and his troops hadn't crossed the Delaware on Christmas night in...
